Saudi Arabia's KSrelief, GAVI to raise COVID-19 awareness among children

RIYADH: The King Salman Humanitarian Aid and Relief Center (KSrelief) signed a memorandum of cooperation (MoC) with the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations (GAVI) on Thursday.
According to the MoC, some of the winners of the Gamers Without Borders tournament, organized by the Saudi Arabian Federation for Electronic and Intellectual Sports (SAFEIS), will donate a sum amounting to $1,339,500 to help children worldwide face the coronavirus pandemic through preventive and awareness-raising programs.
The deal was signed by KSrelief’s General Supervisor Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah and GAVI’s Managing Director Marie-Ange Saraka-Yao.
As the body entrusted with delivering aid provided by the Kingdom to foreign bodies, KSrelief had already signed an MoC with SAFEIS to allocate the donation funds resulting from the organization of the Gamers Without Borders tournament, which amounted to $10 million, to international organizations and bodies concerned with combating COVID-19 worldwide.
“We have signed an MoC with an international organization that has historical relations with the Kingdom,” said Al-Rabeeah.
“In 2020, the world faced the coronavirus pandemic, which has affected and killed millions around the world, and has had dangerous and negative repercussions on international health systems and the global economy,” he added.
Saraka-Yao said: “This MoC will promote our ties with the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, help those affected by the coronavirus and contribute to the prevention efforts.”
